@maniamsmart: Well what you sent was a video correct? The day we feature user video's is on Wednesday. You also sent a message about the Social Network Union, Unions are mentioned on Fridays. Hope this clears things up a bit.

I've always enjoyed reading Ricardo's reviews -- I'm sad to hear he's leaving, but he's left an infallible impact on GameSpot. He'll be missed, and I wish him the best in his future endeavors. Great blogs this time around---congrats to everybody that's been mentioned!

I see the same people being featured in these things every week... well maybe not all the same, but there are a few that have been already featured. Another thing I don't understand is that, in the beginning when this Daily Report thing started it said "If you want to share something with the community send me a PM." So I'm thinking ok cool, I want to share some of my stuff... I sent a message, and then I don't get featured... I didn't even get a reply saying oh there is a waiting list or something, no response nothing, I find it totally disrespectful! If you have time to read the PM (which I know it was read because it's marked as read in my outbox... or wait maybe they just clicked Mark as Read -___- And it's not just with this, I have sent messages before and no replies ever come back. The only person that has ever replied back to me within a day is @gmax and he has always responded to something when I needed a response, I'm beginning to think he is the only reliable person here. Maybe I'm wrong here, but that's just what I have gotten from my time and experience at Gamespot here for the past 5 years.

Ohhhh no! Not Ricardo!! I am going to have to sit the entire family down and explain this devastating news to them. I do not know how they are going to take it :( Why couldn't it have been that young go getter! That Jody Robinson girl!! :( A guard of honour will be formed outside the Gamespot offices for Ricardo!
